Grant From Assemblyman George Latimer Will Create Fitness Area

Stephenson Park, site of the old Stephenson Elementary School, is the primary recreational area for New Rochelle’s East End. In recent years, the City’s Department of Parks and Recreation has worked with the East End Civic Association and interested residents to develop a master plan for park improvements. An essential aspect of that plan is the conversion of an in-line skating surface to a new outdoor fitness area. Thanks to a generous State grant of $125,000 from Assemblyman George Latimer, we can now proceed with this work.
